Brief Principles of Macroeconomics, 6th Edition, N. Gregory Mankiw

Brief Principles of Macroeconomics, 6th Edition

With its clear and engaging writing style, BRIEF PRINCIPLES OF MACROECONOMICS, Sixth Edition, continues to be one of the most popular books on economics available today. Mankiw emphasizes material that you are likely to find interesting about the economy (particularly if you are studying economics for the first time), including real-life scenarios, useful facts, and the many ways economic concepts play a role in the decisions you make every day.

Review

“I think it is more reader friendly than other texts. In addition, it uses both numeric and/or graphical examples, which is very useful for the students.”

“We used to use Case and Fair’s text. Mankiw seems to be a better text because it actually follows through with giving applications to what he includes in the book. For example, there is much better material in Mankiw about consumer surplus, producer surplus, government policies and interventions in the market.”

“Very student friendly text. Makes economics easy to understand. Some of the other texts would take a lot of reading to explain an idea.” Continue reading
